Newsletter week of 9-16-19

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We finished our first full week of 2nd grade.   The students have done a great job of learning the rules and procedures and we have begun our normal routine this week.  
Important things to know about homework are:• The homework sheet for the week, along with the spelling words, will be glued in your child’s agenda on Mondays.  • Please make sure your child reads TO you every night. They can check out books on Monday during library. However, if they need a new one before then, they can visit the library before school. • The spelling words are part of the reading skills for that week so please check that they are doing one menu item nightly and returning the assignment to school every day.•  I will send home a reading passage that your child needs to read to you nightly. 
We will work on the following skills in Reading this nine weeks:• Use consonants, consonant blends, and consonant digraphs to decode words.• Use knowledge of short, long, and r-controlled vowel patterns to decode and spell words.• Use information in the story to read words.• Use knowledge of sentence structure.• Use knowledge of story structure and sequence.• Reread and self-correct• Use vocabulary from other content areas.• Ask and answer questions about what is read in fiction and nonfiction.• Locate information to answer questions.• Describe characters, setting, and important events in fiction and poetry.• Identify main idea in fiction and nonfiction. • Summarize stories and events with beginning middle, and end in the correct sequence.• Draw conclusions based on text.
In Science this week, we will practice the Scientific Method, learn about tools that scientists use, and begin our unit on matter.
This week in Math the students will work on patterns, and in Social Studies the students will continue to explore what makes a good citizen.
As you can see, we have a busy first nine weeks ahead of us, especially in Reading.  I am looking forward to working with all of you this year and I want to thank you in advance for sharing your student with me.  
Sincerely,Mrs. Cindy Martie

We have started the year off very well. Your child has been learning their rules, policies and procedures. Academically, we are moving along. Your child received their monthly study guide, which is in the back of their behavior folder. I am encouraging you to review this nightly, for approximately 10 minutes. Also, your child, on most evenings, will bring home papers in their backpacks. Please look at those and reinforce any skill that they may need to practice. I am looking forward to seeing everyone on October 10th for our first family engagement night. If you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher.  Thanks!
